Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw series, which is under the leadership of artistic director David Staller, continues Nov. 25 with a reading of George Bernard Shaw's 1895 comedy Candida at Symphony Space’s Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre.
Directed by Staller, the 7 PM performance features the talents of Tony Award nominees Judy Kuhn (Candida) and Douglas Sills (Morell), with Brandon J. Vukovic as Marchbanks, Alison Cimmet as Prossy, Bill Kux as Burgess and Jordan Coughtry as Lexy. Patrick Pacheco narrates.
Candida, according to press notes, "sweeps us through one tumultuous day. An impassioned young poet, Marchbanks, has become a fixture in the home of the foreword thinking Reverend James Morell and his brilliant wife, Candida. By the end of that day, the poet has forced a life-changing decision from Candida that will forever alter the future of all concerned. Along the way, Shaw exhibits his dazzling insights and wicked wit."
